BLEACHER CREATURES: In Boston, Scott Van Voorhis notes the Red Sox will open the Bleacher Bar behind the center field wall in Fenway Park in '09. Red Sox Senior VP/Planning & Development Janet Marie Smith said that the restaurant “is just one of four possible locations on the team’s radar screen,” and the team would “prefer to give local restaurateurs a crack at the new locations.” Smith: “I don’t know if it’s a hard and fast commitment to say no [chain restaurants], but it’s certainly not where we have been looking” (BOSTON HERALD, 10/26).
ORANGE YOU READY? In Ft. Lauderdale, Sarah Talalay reports Miami City Commissioners decided Thursday they “want a full report on the status of ballpark negotiations” at their December 13 meeting, but they also “want a public declaration from the Marlins sooner as to whether the team wants a stadium at the Orange Bowl site.” Miami Commission Vice Chair Joe Sanchez said that the city “has been negotiating with the Marlins long enough and if a ballpark will not be built there, he wants the city to consider options such as a park, soccer stadium or affordable housing” (South Florida SUN-SENTINEL, 10/26).
